Control PCH via PC - pucksterdave21 - 10-22-2009 08:52 PM

OK Im a newbie in running jukeboxes on this thing. tried yamj and didnt get it to bring in my moives real well.

Here is what I want to do. Make my own HTML file that will run on a laptop or my dream is to have it on a touch screen on the coffee table.

Can i control my PHC via another PC? I dont want it to jump through hoops. jsut select a movie off the PC and have it start playing on the PCH. a pause option would be nice.

I have searched this site up and down and didnt find anything that really looked like what my wish it. to control via another PC.

is it possiable?

Search the Wiki for "Touch Everything" and "MediatankController"

Is there no HTML code or command line code that can run off the PC to the PCH? I thought for sure there would be.

I'm not sure what you are looking for that "Touch Everything" and "MediatankController" do not already do????? Huh

There's telnet and shell with root access to the NMT's, so you can pretty much do what you want.

Please have a look at the suggested apps, here's a third one, btw:

TouchEverything is designed around a tabletpc/touch panel, so it pretty much seems to fulfill your dreams already Wink
